This HSE article on Elder Abuse: bit.ly/361rKu6‘Elder abuse are the saddest applications because no parent wants to make an order against their child. But the reality is that many are forced to do it’

The comment is from Doctor Adam McAuley, DCU Asst Professor of Law who carried out pioneering research into elder abuse cases in the Irish Family Court. He found:
• Age of abuse victims ranged from mother in her late 30s to woman in her late 80s
• Sons five times more likely to abuse an elderly parent compared to daughters
• Mothers far more likely to experience elder abuse compared to fathers
• Verbal abuse/threats most common forms of abuse, including threats with knives
• Property damage, physical violence, demands for money also common

If you are feeling worried, frightened or threatened, contact SeniorLine 1800 80 45 91, or the HSE 24 Helpline 1850 24 1850
